The statue sure was beautiful. I wondered the same thing myself and a little searching on the web yielded the following:

"....the statue, which was dedicated in 1894 in honor of Laommi Bean, a Weirs Beach farmer who was killed in the Civil War. Today, the sign is long gone, and the statue was struck by lightning and destroyed in 1931."
